How's the build going? I know things can get slow around the holidays.

It's tropic green and a GT. Would be nice if it were a Bullitt, but no. It does have the Mach 1000 audio system.

When I replaced the intake manifold on my 04,I added sealer to that plug at the back of the valley.Antifreeze was rolling down that valley,going right past that loose fitting plug,and playing havoc with the clutch.

I'm really getting a lot of info from your posts. I've installed cams myself and had the top end off and out of my 04 GT. I've been playing with the idea of forging everything and then adding a SC for a while but I haven't gotten around to it. After reading this post I think that I'll finally rebuild the motor over the summer. Hope to read more and see how things turned out.
